What is Microneedling?
Skin Corrective Treatment
Microneedling is an innovative skin treatment that uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating the body's natural healing process and promoting collagen production. This versatile treatment effectively addresses various skin concerns, from reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to improving skin texture and minimizing pores. Microneedling is not just beneficial for anti-aging; it also effectively treats acne scars, uneven skin tone, and sun damage.
Here at Nob Hill Aesthetics, we offer a version of Microneedling by Procell Therapies called Microchanneling that can be a more comfortable option with less downtime, and more suitable for delivering serums and skincare products into the skin. The procedure's ability to rejuvenate the surface layer of the skin results in a refreshed, youthful complexion.

What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves using fine needles to create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin. This process stimulates the skin's natural healing response, promoting the production of collagen and elastin. The treatment is used to improve skin texture and firmness, reduce pores, scars, and wrinkles, and overall rejuvenate the skin. It's a minimally invasive technique suitable for various skin types and can address a range of skin concerns.
What Can I Expect Before my Microneedling Treatment?
Before your microneedling treatment, follow these general steps:
- Consult with Your Microneedling Provider here at Nob Hill Aesthetics: Discuss your skin concerns, medical history, and any medications you're taking.
- Avoid Sun Exposure: Stay out of the sun for a few days prior to avoid irritation.
- Discontinue Certain Skincare Products: Stop using products with retinol, acid exfoliants, or other harsh ingredients several days before.
- No Makeup: Arrive for the treatment with a clean face, free of makeup.
- Medication Adjustments: Your Microneedling provider at Nob Hill Aesthetics might advise you to pause certain medications, like blood thinners, to minimize bruising risk.
- Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated.
Your Nob Hill Aesthetics provider will give you a detailed list of instructions tailored to your specific needs.
What can I Expect during my Microneedling Treatment?
During a Microneedling treatment, you can expect the following steps:
- Skin Cleansing: Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, oil, or dirt.
- Application of a Topical Numbing Cream: To minimize discomfort, a numbing cream may be applied to the treatment area.
- Microneedling Procedure: The provider will use a device with fine needles to create microchannels in the skin. This may feel like a light pricking or scratching sensation.
- Serum Application: After microchanneling, a serum or growth factor might be applied to enhance the treatment's effectiveness and soothe the skin.
- Post-Treatment Care: Your provider will apply a soothing gel or cream and may provide post-treatment instructions for skincare and sun protection.
The procedure is usually well-tolerated with minimal discomfort due to the numbing cream, and the entire session typically lasts about 30-60 minutes.
What can I expect after my Microneedling Treatment?
After your Microneedling treatment, you can expect:
- Mild Irritation: Some redness and swelling similar to a mild sunburn.
- Avoid Sun Exposure: Protect your skin with sunscreen and minimize direct sunlight.
- Skincare Products: Use gentle, non-irritating products recommended by your provider.
- No Makeup: Avoid makeup for at least 24 hours to allow the skin to heal.
- Hydrate Your Skin: Keep the skin moisturized.
- Avoid Strenuous Activities: Reduce activities that cause excessive sweating for a few days.
- Follow Post-Treatment Instructions: Adhere to any specific guidelines provided by your Microneedling specialist.
When will I see my Microneedling results?
Initial Results - from Microneedling treatments typically start to become noticeable after a few weeks.
Full Effects - are usually more visible after multiple treatments over a period of several months. This is due to the time required for the skin to heal and produce new collagen.
Individual results can vary depending on skin type, the specific condition being treated, and the number of treatments received. Remember, skin rejuvenation is a gradual process, and patience is key to see the desired outcomes.
Am I a good candidate for Microneedling?
You may be a good candidate for Microneedling if you have concerns such as mild to moderate acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, or uneven skin tone and texture. It's suitable for most skin types. However, it's not recommended if you have:
1. Active Acne
2. Skin Infections
3. Keloid Scarring
It's important to consult with a Nob Hill Aesthetics provider to determine if microneedling is appropriate for your specific skin concerns and overall health.
